Our Teachers

Sigurd Feiring


Sigurd Feiring was born in Lillehammer, Norway. After his examen artium (equivalent to UK A levels) in 1976, he gained a place at the Østlandets Consevatoire of Music where he specialised in violin performance and educational studies. He later continued his violin studies with Camilla Wicks in the US.

Sigurd worked for several years as a freelance violinist with Norwegian symphony orchestras, as well as teaching in various music schools in the Oslo area. After a year of teaching in the Faroe Islands, he was offered a job with the Royal Oman Symphony Orchestra. He worked in Oman from 1987-1996 and later from 2003-2005, where he was part of a team of instrumental teachers who created a symphony orchestra for the sultan. Sigurd has lived in London since 1996, where he combines teaching and performing. He has taught violin and viola at the Conservatoire since 2006. He also works for Bromley and Lewisham music services.

If Sigurd were stranded on a desert island, he would like to have with him:
Richard Strauss’s Four Last Songs
Bach’s Cello Suites
Works by Henrik Ibsen
Jo Nesbo's thrillers

 

"Since childhood I have been passionate about the violin.  I find the teaching part of my work particularly rewarding.  It gives great satisfaction to follow my pupil’s progress from beginners to advanced players; to be part of this process; and to help make it possible for so many to enjoy music making."
